The song premiered on Phil Jupitus' show on BBC Radio 6 Music in early May that year. The lyrics referenced Dora Maar, a French photographer and one-time lover of Pablo Picasso. The sample at the beginning of the song is from an interview with film director Francis Ford Coppola's wife about the making of Apocalypse Now.[1]
